I'm anal. I'll admit it. I like the center caps aligned with the valve stems. :crazy: But my center caps want to rotate as I drive. Does anyone have a fix?
Well, you could put a little dot of neon orange spray paint on the valve step, but that would totally screw up your wheel balance and alignment and unsprung weight, so I guess you're right. I was going to go hit the twisties, but I'll fiddle with my caps for a while instead.How else are we supposed to find the valve stem?
Haha, I did the same, checked mine the other day after reading this thread and all crests were pointing at the valve stems. I know I didn't do it and I had the wheels off last year to clean and wax the rims. I did have it at the dealer two weeks ago for a brake fluid. flush, they must have done it.This is something I never thought of until now. So naturally I went out to check mine and after almost 8000 miles all of them are pointed at the valve stems except one which I adjusted. This will be something new for me to keep track of.
Yep, that would drive me nuts. :hilarious:Centerlocks would drive you guys batty. The caps fit into the centerlock nuts, and have tabs that line up with corresponding indentations that let you slip a thin slotted screwdriver into to pry off the cap (there is also a "special" tool available). When the locking nut is torqued down, the crest points where it points: there is no way to adjust it. Personally, I have come to appreciate the exquisitely engineered randomness of it all.
